The series has everything you'd want from a sports manga: relentless action, budding bromance, character development/growth, and best of all, this is one of the rare sports mangas where characters don't rely on gimmicks to excel in the sport. (see: Prince of Tennis)
The plot and the characters are very well crafted; the author also did a very good job of depicting even the supporters of each J1 team that appears -- the character relationships in this manga is very rich, owing to the fact that the story revolves around the manager: you see interaction between manager manager, manager player, and even manager national team manager.
Overall, an awesome attention to detail and clever discussions of football tactics (along with lovable characters, plot, and other genetic manga stuff) makes this series a surprisingly enjoyable read for all of you football maniacs who've logged in countless hours in Football Manager 98! read more
